MiTek Epoxy CIA-GEL won’t crack under pressure even if the concrete does. 

CIA-GEL 7000-C Epoxy is an adhesive designed to attach threaded rods into concrete that may become cracked during service due to cyclic loading from wind or earthquakes.

  • It may also be used with fully grouted CMU construction.
  • It is a low odor, solvent free, non-shrink, non-sag adhesive.
  • The two-component (resin and hardener) epoxy is supplied in equal volume cartridges, which are combined in a 1:1 ratio when dispensed through the attached mixing nozzle.
  • Either a hand powered or air-powered dispenser may be used. The cartridges are sealed with a D-plug which opens easily on the jobsite and allows partially used cartridges to be saved for later use.
  • The epoxy has a two year shelf life when stored in unopened containers at temperatures between 50˚F and 77˚ F.
